Been on it for 2 1/2 months now, 50mg at night and stopped those night ones for bit, but that ended too soon. Seems someone here mentioned taking it with extra-strength tylenol, and so I experimented with that, 1 25mg pill with 2 tylenol at the onset of a headache, within 30minutes I'm painfree and sleeping. May sleep and hour to 4, depends on the headache I think. Saw a wonderful new Dr. yesterday - knows CH's and tomorrow I start the verapamil, building up to the 80mg/3x day, and prescribed oxygen as we suspect I can't handle imitrex. Another steriod to help break this chronic cycle till we get the EKG & EEG done so I can increase verapamil if needed. Sure hope all this works!
